Reports on Lakers vs. Warriors Game 6 injuries: LeBron James, Anthony Davis and Steph Curry play on the court?

Latest news on LeBron James, Anthony Davis and Steph Curry

Wednesday night at the Chase Center in San Francisco, the Warriors kept their perfect record intact with a 121-106 victory over the Los Angeles Lakers. The Lakers have taken a 3-2 series lead.

The Warriors were led by Steph Curry’s 27 points and eight assists, with Andrew Wiggins contributing 25 points and seven boards.

The Lakers were unable to get going against the Warriors in game 5. They anticipate more favorable outcomes.

Davis’ status for Friday’s game 6 is listed as “questionable,” but the organization remains hopeful that he will be able to play.

Anthony Davis (foot) is expected to play in Friday’s Game 6 against the Warriors, per Dan Woike of the Los Angeles Times.

The Lakers are focusing on other matters after Davis suffered a head injury in Game 5.

Davis’ foot issue has been listed as probable for weeks, so he should play in Game 6.

Meanwhile, despite soreness in his right foot, LeBron James plans to play in Friday’s Game 6, as reported by Dan Woike of the Los Angeles Times.

James has not missed a playoff game due to foot soreness despite being listed as doubtful on multiple occasions.

James has averaged 22.8 points, 10.1 boards, and 5.0 assists in 36.8 minutes over 11 playoff games this postseason.

James has scored 25 and 27 points in his last two games on 21.0 field goal attempts per game, which is below his regular season average of 28.9.

It’s already tough enough to win a series against the defending champion, let alone the four-time world champion Golden State Warriors.

The Lakers, on the other hand, can rely on the experience of four-time NBA Finals MVP LeBron James and one-time Finals MVP Davis.

The Lakers know they have to beat the Warriors on Friday, and they know it won’t be easy, or they’ll have to go back to San Francisco for Game 7, which they don’t want to do.
